Stock Market Lessons

As the saying goes, learning how to trade successfully has a very high tuition rate. Few endeavors can challenge you the way the market does on a consistent day-to-day, week-by-week, and year-by-year basis. And, no matter how smart you may be or what system you develop to beat the market, past returns offer no guarantee. If anything, I've learned that the hard way.

No matter how long you've been trading or investing, we all can learn new things about the market and ourselves. It is also true the lessons we learn the hard way in the stock market always seem to make the biggest impact. That's why books, websites, seminars, etc. on trading will never replace battle-hardened experience. Unless you're making those same mistakes first hand, the lessons from those mistakes out of context won't really be that helpful.

With that said, I still continue to be impressed with the insight and knowledge of those who read this thread and I'm privileged to share the journey with you. As it turns out, many of the lessons you've learned over the past year are lessons many of us have learned many times.

Stock Market Lessons:

Timing the trade is key

Add to winning positions

Don't be afraid to pick up oversold merchandise when it goes on sale

The trend really is your friend

Hold on to a climbing stock even if the market is screaming a sell

Focus - watch a few investments closely and learn their patterns

Let the profits run and adjust stops up

You need buy cheap and accept the volatility

A good stock will run longer than imagined

Always stick with your gut

If I work hard I will achieve more winners than losers

Look for the leaders, buy the leaders, and stay with the leaders

When you see a high probability trade you can swing a big bat as long as you stick to your discipline

The fundamentals don't lie

Slow and steady wins the race

There are only a few stocks that really worth going after at any one time

Don't trade for the thrill of trading

Trade less - earn more

Don't be afraid to go against the popular trends

Patience is a virtue

Once I decided to follow the numbers rather than my personal "feelings," I was able to start making successful trades again

Pick best of breed

Must "know" the particular behavior of a stock

Trust my system regardless of my feelings

Pick one stock/sector and learn it well

Don't be a bag holder (i.e. overstay your welcome)

Read beyond the headline and think

Valuation is always subjective

Doing well is incompatible with limited time available

Know your entry and exit points prior to investing

Selling at the price at which you would no longer purchase the stock is a good philosophy

Keep your stops tight when a stock looks to be topping

Be in touch with where the money flows

That it is fun to make money

Being timid is a recipe for underperformance

You need an edge to beat the street

Discipline and patience are not four-letter words | Your smart guide to money matters and entrepreneurship.

ang pagbili ng shares buy and sell lang. bumili ka ng shares pag mababa ang presyo sa market at pag mataas na ang presyo, ibenta mo ung shares mo. kaya magandang bumili ng shares pag mahina ang market. , mababa ang presyo, mas marami kang shares na mabibili.

kung expert ka na sa pagbili ng shares sa stock market, pwedeng ikaw na mismo ang makipagtransact para bumili at kung sang company mo gusto bumili ng shares like ayala land. visit mo citisec online kung paano bumili. pero pag nagsisimula pa lang, i suggest go for mutual fund. eto naman bumibili ka din ng shares, pero hindi ikaw directly ang nakikipagtransact para bumili. may fund manager na hahawak ng pera mo at sila ang bahalang bumili ng shares kung san sa tingin nila ok maginvest na company.

ang fund manager ko ay first metro, subsidiary ng metrobank. min of 10k initial investment, min of 1k top up pero hnd required to ah, hnd na nga nadagdagan ung initial ko and its been a year haha. pero mas maganda kung dinadagdagan. hope madagdagan ko na hihi.

may mga insurance na bundled with mutual fund investment. check with sunlife and prulife. good insurance provider yan. so ok to, insured ka na may investment pa.

sana nakatulong
